World AIDS Day
World AIDS Day is held on the 1st of December each year. It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died of or due to the complications of AIDS.
World AIDS Day is important because it reminds people and governments that HIV has not gone away – there is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education.
HIV can affect everyone, from those who have been diagnosed with the infection to the people they love, their partners and their family. It’s found within all communities of the world. Advances in treatments have brought us to a place where many people living with HIV can now expect to live a long and fulfilling life.
The fight is not over. We still haven’t discovered a cure. World AIDS Day is a time to reflect on our achievements and to consider how much more we can and need to do in the future.
Love is Love.
If you are HIV positive or love someone who is, PLANETROMEO acknowledges you, especially today.
We are one: we are family.
